Cattle Corporation is Your Trusted Partner for End-to-End Product Development, from Concept to Manufacturing. No Project is Beyond Our Expertise, Whether On-Farm or Off-Farm.
It is important that Australia’s cattle and beef sector is competitive and efficient. The industry is the single largest contributor to the annual value of Australian agricultural production: more than half of Australian farms produce beef cattle. In 2022, Australia exported 67% of its total beef and veal production. The value of total beef and veal exports in 2022 was A$10.4 billion. The profitability of cattle farms varies greatly, with independent research showing that the size and productivity of cattle farms are important factors that determine profitability.
We are dedicated to enhancing the cattle industry by working with world leading researchers, producers, and processors. Through the power of collaboration, we strive to provide cutting-edge solutions for animal management and processing, enabling our customers to operate responsibly, efficiently, and profitably.
We actively support both on-farm and off-farm research and development initiatives. We collaborate with a diverse range of project partners, including producer groups, peak industry councils, and esteemed Australian researchers. By engaging with these partners, we ensure that our R&D efforts are practical and applicable to real-world situations.
We are committed to translating research and development into tangible action. We implement the knowledge and insights gained from our collaborations into practical solutions that directly benefit the cattle industry. By bridging the gap between research and application, we actively contribute to the industry's growth and success.
We're working to enhance the transportation efficiency and agtech that supports the nation's thriving beef industry which in Northern Australia consists of a cattle population of 12.5 million and contributes to 90 percent of Australia's live cattle exports.
The transportation of cattle from the Northern Territory to east coast abattoirs involves considerable distances, with an average journey of nearly 1000 km and occasionally up to 2500 km. These extensive travel distances incur increased expenses and production risks. Specifically, land transport expenses can account for up to 35 percent of the market price of livestock.
During certain months of the year, floods and seasonal road closures can hinder the movement of livestock, preventing them from reaching ports or abattoirs. Consequently, the utilisation of crucial infrastructure assets is compromised, posing economic challenges to their sustainability and diminishing the profitability and resilience of the industry.
The growth of the Australian national cattle herd is on track to increase throughout 2023, resulting in a high supply of both young cattle and finished weight animals to market well into 2024. This is according to the latest Cattle Industry Projections update from Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA), which notes that the national cattle herd will reach its highest level since 2014 at 28.7m head.
With the national cattle herd reaching its highest level since 2014 this year, stocking rates in southern Australia, particularly in New South Wales, are at levels well above long-term averages. Northern Australia will develop its herd rebuild on the back of a very strong wet season generally.
Our mission is to drive commercial success for our clients by developing innovative products and delivering exceptional user experiences that resonate in global markets for the cattle industry.
